At the Tryon Equestrian Centre it was an all American stage in the 1.40m Welcoming class. Tracey Fenney speeded to victory aboard her 8-year-old MTM Apple (Favorit ASK).
The combination was the only to keep the timer in under 32 seconds. With over one second difference Kristen Vanderveen followed as runner-up with her 10-year-old Quasimodo Z-mare, Bull Run's Living.
Lauren Tisbo completed the stage aboard Casco 11 (Berlin). The pair was followed by Carlo Quinones with Satoyama in fourth and Juan Ortiz with Verlano (Verdi TN) in fifth.
